 It’s a busy day for our area in the basketball relm and the Lady Bishops are at the center of it. For the first time in 16 years Rosecrans will be back in the State Final Four, and you still have time to show your support.

The Rosecrans community along with other local fans will be sending the Lady Bishops off to Columbus at noon with a mini-pep rally at Rogge Gym. Players, Coaches, and Staff will be introduced one last time before the team departs for their game in Columbus at  six pm. 

Rosecrans enters today’s contest at 26-1 and finished the year ranked number three in the Ohio Associated Press poll. Their opponent Holgate comes into the State Final Four with a record of 23-4 and are lead by six foot senior Marrisa Myles who averages just under 14 points per contest. She has help though, 5’9 sophmore Sarah Niese adds 10 points a game and 5’8 junior Mattie Grimm is a shade under the double digit mark for the season.

Game time is slated for six pm at the Value City arena in Columbus. The game can be heard on WHIZ Z92 FM and online at by clicking on the listen live link.
